Kramer- E-news 8/23/19

The kindergarten and 1st grade students had a great 1st week of school!  Our 2nd through 5th grade students are off to a great start.


Kramer Parent Teacher Group (PTG) welcomes you to the 2019-20 school year. Our first meeting is  Monday 8/26, 7pm Kramer Cafeteria, free childcare provided and all are welcome. For more information and to volunteer, please go to


Beginning of the year bus routes:

If your child rides the bus, please be patient.  Bus routes could be running a few minutes late the first few weeks.  


Drop-off & Pickup

If you are dropping off or picking up your child in the vehicle line please remember the following procedures for the safety of all of the students.

-All Car Riders must be dropped off and picked up in the designated area. 

-AM: Drop-off beyond Main Entrance steps.

***Parents may not park or get out of their car in the car line.  We have staff that will assist the students.

-PM: Pick-up beyond Preschool steps.

***Parents may not park or get out of their car in the car line.  We have staff that will assist the students.

-Cars must only enter the Pick-up Line from Sycamore Street.

-Please do not block the crosswalks or the Bus Driveway!

-Pick-up of foot traffic should occur under the awning of the main entrance.  Please do not have your child walk and meet you along the street. Buses and cars are moving up and down Sycamore Street.

-The Talawanda Bus system is the most convenient, efficient and safe method of transportation.  It allows students to be delivered to the door of the school and allows for the smallest carbon footprint.  We strongly encourage all students to ride the bus each day.
